NVIDIA does not work properly in 10.1


Hi there!

Today I installed Slack10.1 over my 10.0 nearly everything works from the beginnning!

Only problem by now is, that I can't get my old resolution of 1280x1024 working again. The max is 1024x768

I installed my old NVIDIA-drivers ...6111 and now installed 7167 ... but nothing changed.

Did I miss something? I changed my xorg.conf ... by changing "vesa" to "nvidia" and glx was loaded from the beginning and the two lines the should not be in the .conf were never in it. I added the modes "1280x1024" to all of my bitdepths ... I can't remember that I did more the last time on 10.0

Kernel is from Slack10.1 CD ... bareacpi ... version 2.4.29

Can someone help me out?

I post my xorg.conf below...

Thanks very much!

Greetings, Sascha

to fix 1280x1024 not working. Be sure you know your Monitors Verticle Refresh Rate or Verticle Sync. This is the major problem for all nVidia Cards and I hav efixed it by setting on my 15" display the Verticle refresh to 50-120 to make it work. This has worked from the day Istarted to make it and you need to be sure of your monitors abilities and I do not even have the nVidia Driver installed and has no issues with any of the crashes or debug problems.

The vesa driver is not real efficent and uses cpu time so there is some overhead using the vesa driver. Also by not using the nvidia driver no accellerated graffics. Also check your video ram. With only 4mb of video ram 1280x1024 might be pushing it.

WFM just fine 64MB of SDRAM on board. This is one of the things I make sure people read about before trying this, make sure you know your Ram for the Video card, and one note to self, if anyone has an on board video card, then you are streatching it with limitations of a max of 11Mb on some systems and 2MB as the max on others.

WFM = Works For Me

I have a new version of the 2.6.11.6 and 2.6.6 kerenls too just got off the ftp site from kernel.org. Going to try the 2.6.11.6 first and if I can make that work thenthe 2.6.6 is going to be just fine,

Do check that vetical and horizontal refresh rate.
I think the best thing for you is 60-120 on the VertRefresh.
HorizSync 31.5 - 50.0 might be OK

HorizSync 31.5 - 50.0
# HorizSync 30-64 # multisync
# HorizSync 31.5, 35.2 # multiple fixed sync frequencies
# HorizSync 15-25, 30-50 # multiple ranges of sync frequencies
VertRefresh 40-90
